Paypal is sending me to collections for account falsely linked to mine

I have been a member with them since 2005. Zero problems or complaints with my account. I got an email from ebay saying my ebay account was linked to another user. I called to find out what was going on. Also, called paypal to verify that nothing was wrong. 1 hour later they limited my account and canceled my card. I call and they say they found a user with an outstanding debt of $2100 from 2003 that had an email address that started with the same as my ebay account name. I told them that wasn’t me. They say well we have concluded that this is the same user and now want me to pay the outstanding balance and they are going to take me to collections. I feel so trapped. I do a lot of business through paypal and need my paypal account but I feel its a straight robbery that I have to pay someone else’s debt.
